One of the most, if not the most controversial Korean drama to date is JTBC’s The World of the Married. I’ve seen several social media statuses posted about this drama, and it is more than surprising; the common words used are shocking, depressing, sick, and f*cked up. The drama is about a seemingly perfect marriage between Ji Sun Woo (Kim Hee Ae) and Lee Tae Oh (Park Hae Joon) turned bitter because of several conflicts and the latter’s betrayal.
Hence, according to the drama’s production crew, “Starting from the ninth episode airing on April 24 all the way to episode 16, the finale, the drama will be rated 19+.” This is due to the fact that the writers and producers wanted the drama to be honest and realistic enough. They don’t want to cut out parts that would make the drama static or sluggish because they were at a good start.
The second part of the drama would be more intense and groundbreaking. One of the writers said that it will revolve around Tae Oh’s psychological abuse on Ji Soon (who was already her ex-wife by this time). This abuse would make Tae Oh’s secret lover turned wife Yeo Da Kyung (Han So Hee) envious and tensed.
I believe that this is risky, but the right move. The drama is vivid and agonizing as it can be, but it also is a mirror to some real lives of couples. It will be an eye-opener. To everyone watching it and those still planning to do so, good luck!😄
